  • 9" Square Pan Coat the bottom and sides with butter and line with parchment paper


  • 265 grams of Bread Flour
  • 45 grams of Granulated Sugar
  • 1 Teaspoon of Kosher Salt
  • 1 ½ Teaspoon of Instant Yeast
  • 120 ml of Warm Whole Milk
  • 1 Whole Large Egg
  • 1 Egg Yolk
  • 3 Tablespoons of Softened Butter
  • 1 Egg Yolk
  • 1 Teaspoon of Water


  • In the bowl of an electric stand mixer, fitted with the paddle attachment, add the bread flour, sugar, salt, yeast, milk and eggs. Beat until all the ingredients are combined.
  • Add the softened butter and beat until it’s incorporated.
  • Switch to the dough hook and on medium speed knead for 10-12 minutes. The dough should be smooth and pull away from the sides of the bowl.
  • Form the dough into a ball and place it into a buttered bowl,
  • Cover and allow the dough to rise until about doubled, or if you poke the dough with a floured finger it springs back slowly and leaves a small indentation.
  • Tip the dough out of the bowl onto a lightly floured surface.
  • Divide the dough into 16 pieces, approximately 32 grams each.
  • Flatten each piece of dough and gather up the sides and pinch together to form a ball.
  • Roll the balls under your cupped hand to smooth it and create tension.
  • Place the balls of dough in the prepared pan evenly spaced in a 4 x 4 pattern.
  • Cover with plastic and allow to rise until the rolls are just about touching each other and they are puffy. It may take anywhere from 1 hour – 1 ½ hours depending on the temperature.
  • Beat together 1 egg yolk and 1 teaspoon of water and brush over the tops of the risen rolls.
  • Bake in a preheated 350° F oven for 18 minutes
